Not all homes can claim it, but some have attic space that is actually usable. If your home has attic space that you could transform, why not consider it? You might wind up with an area that you’ll truly enjoy. At Perfect Fit Window Fashions serving Naples, we have a few ideas for how you might make that space work for you. Check them out below!
A Dreamy Closet
Instead of just collecting cobwebs and dust, your attic can work for you. With a little imagination and some elbow grease, you could transform it to a space you’ll want to spend lots of time in. Always be sure to check out local building codes, get any needed permits, and have an HVAC company ensure that your ductwork is in order. For example, you could create the closet of your dreams right above your head. Just paint your attic a clean white, and add a full mirror, a dresser, and a changing stool. Then just arrange your clothes the way you want, and you’ve got your private closet space.
A Remote Haven
Have you ever dreamed of a quiet reading nook? Your attic could become that haven! If it has sloped ceilings, use lower furniture and smaller artwork. With a comfy bench, a side table, a few accessories, and a reading lamp, the area could become your stress-free quiet zone.
You could bring in some extra cash each month by renting the space to vacationers or short-term renters. If the attic is big enough, you can turn it into a cute studio apartment, with an economy kitchen, a half bath, and a sleeping area.
A Spa-Like Retreat
Why not create that luxury bathroom of your dreams? Your attic could be the blank slate to work with. Even if you don’t go all-out with the options, adding an extra bath to your home could increase its overall value.
Don’t Forget Window Treatments
Especially if the attic becomes a bedroom, bathroom, or dressing room, privacy will be important. You might also want to think about light control, UV ray protection, and energy efficiency. Because you might want all the insulation you can get, consider treatments specially designed to keep outside air out, such as Duette® Honeycomb Shades, Sonnette® Cellular Roller Shades, or Solera® Soft Shades. If your attic has a skylight (or if you add one), consider treatments like Somner® Custom Vertical Blinds or Vertical Solutions® Vertical Blinds.
